    Adjunct Faculty Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Rochester, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Rochester, NY
    Application Details

    I interviewed through other source. The process took 2 months - interviewed at RIT (Rochester Institute of Technology).

    Interview Details

    This was the strangest interview I ever had. The director gave an hour and a half monologue about his history and what he wants to do in the department. He literally only asked me one question: "Do you have a Master's?" There was no congratulations, no checking up on my references, no asking for transcripts. I only received a date and time I needed to show up. No contract until a week after I had already been working there.

    Interview Questions
    • There was only one question- "Do you have a Masters?" Not hard.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation. When I was hired some years ago, I was given no documents about expectations or information. You just had to figure it out. And no contract until a week into teaching. Now, new hires are given a two-day seminar on teaching theory and handed a two-page list of expectations.

The majority of the interview was spent describing the office and the position, I was asked only a few questions: the usual tell me about yourself, where do you see yourself in 5 years, have you taken classes with prof. X (used as screener), tell me about what you did in your previous jobs, do you see yourself staying in Rochester, and that type of stuff, nothing hard.

    Interview Details

    Had an initial phone screening with hiring manager and was very disappointed by her tone and style. Very unprofessional and appeared to be distracted. I had to keep repeating myself and was asked virtually the same question several times. Did not leave me with a positive impression
